I would give this bra a 10 if they let me. I got this as a gift, or I might not have tried it. So glad I did! Amazing lift. The broad back coverage minimizes bulges, but the BEST part is, this bra has amazing lift and comfort without straps. That was also a serendipitous find. My straps became misplaced when I washed the bra, and so I wore it without them. I've never gone back to the straps, and I'm never going to, and I'm never buying another underwire bra as long as this one is available. No shoulder straps, no marks, no slipping (didn't slip with the straps, but why bother?), smooth back, perfect lift and coverage, the most comfortable underwire bra I've ever worn, and it is even less expensive than other underwire bras - it just doesn't get any better than this!
